How is everyone doing this fine evening? A quick question for someone. I will be acting in a Haunted house come Oct and they want me to be Leatherface from the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" I have a whole side of 2-3 ounce vegi tan I thought would make a fine mask. I just don't know how to go about making one. Are there any tutorials around on making mask?

Thanks

Johnny

Funny you just posted this. I was printing out pictures in another window of masks. Thinking about making one for fun.

Basicly, it is wet formed. Get the leather real wet, start stretching and pushing. You will need a wig head to do this unless you have a real face to form it over.

Yes I was hoping to form it to my head and face. The problem is my head and face is rather large. I wear a size 8 hat. I may have the misses do the wet forming on my on head. That aught be fun.Posted Image
